We’re at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, hunting for Windows 8 tablets, and we’ve been able to witness the very first 64-bit Bay Trail tablets from HP. After sharing the hands-on with the HP Pavilion x360, we’re now having a look at the ElitePad 1000
HP is one of OEMs who have decided not to abandon Microsoft and its Windows 8 plans at the MWC, as it has unveiled the first 64-bit tablets for consumers and a brand new Windows 8 point of sale system. We’re now talking about the Elite Pad 1000, one of the newest and coolest Windows 8.1 that you can get your hands on. However, at this moment, we don’t know have any details with regards to its pricing, but rumor has it that it will cost $739, which can hardly be called “cheap”.
